The front facade of the church is simple. The inside is surprisingly pretty with tile covering most of the surfaces. If you are in Obidos it is worth stopping to enjoy the beauty.

Attractive decorations inside. Maintains peaceful atmosphere despite large number of visitors. Good for a few minutes of reflection.

Portugal loves the Virgin Mary. This church, dedicated, to St. Mary is a small incredibly beautiful example of that love. Step off the busy main street, Rua Directa, and enter a gilded world with paintings in the naves. Almost all the churches in Portugal have beautiful hand painted tiles in the interiors. This one is a great example.

A little church with blue and white tiles inside. Many decorations. Nice to go inside and have a look but not so much to admire.

Another of many beautiful churches here. We were told that wealthy parishioners were buried inside and the not-quite-as-wealthy in tombs just adjacent to the church which is now sidewalk.
